2 Month Check Up and a Haircut

Nothing like being in a doctors office for an hour with those two boys:) We all had to get checked out for various things so I had to take Kai with me. Kai doesn't know how to sit still. Not for one second. The doctor said that boys are like that so I'm assuming he's normal. That wasn't the reason for taking Kai to the doctor by the way:) Koen weighs 14lbs 11oz. Wow. Huge. I think that's kind of off the charts. He's almost as long was Kai was, 24.25". It's funny how I was so fine with him getting his shots considering I was so upset with Kai's first shots:) He did really well and didn't really cry any more than he normally does. It's been tiring having him eat every 2.5 hours or so and having to hold him so much during the day...at least once he's down for the night (9-11pm ish), he eats and goes right back to sleep. Our nights are wonderful. Last night, he was just up once at 3:30am. It was Kai that was up and ready for the day at 5:30am. My milk supply is quite crazy/high still and I'm pumping off several ounces before a feed so that Koen isn't choking as much when he drinks. I know this will keep my supply high but I need to get rid of some of the foremilk too. I am not giving him the Zantac as he hasn't vomitted in over a week. I wonder if its the BioGaia drops or the dairy free diet that is keeping his gas down to a minimum. I REALLY want a bowl of cereal.

Evidence that Kai watches too much Diego/Dora:
1. Kai's prayer at dinner last night: `Dear God, thank you for the food, thank you for tree frogs, thank you for baby Jaguar'
2. Kai: `Mommy, if you see an egg noodle, say `egg noodle!'

As for the haircut...I am getting my hair cut and highlighted tonight. I'm paying more money than I have ever paid so I'm hoping it looks amazing. Not sure what I'm going to do exactly other than the fact that it will be shorter and blonder. I'm just excited to be kid-free for 2 hours this evening:)


  1. Kai sure is growing well!! I cant wait to see you new hair. Enjoy your time tonight!!

  2. hmmm...this might be weird to say, but i'm jealous of your milk supply :)
